Test ODP presentation
Description of problem:
Using version LibreOffice Impress 4.1, the font in the master slide keeps defaulting to serif (times new roman). Each time I go and edit the master slide to change the font to a sans serif (cantarell) and save, next time I re-open the ODP, it resets everything to serif again. This never happened in the previous version of libreoffice impress (3.6).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached ODP
2. Notice slides are in serif fonts
3. Edit master slide
4. Change slide title and bullet-point text to cantarell
5. Exit master slide and notice all slides change to cantarell, as expected
6. Save document
7. Open document again
All fonts based on the master slide have changed back to serif. Even the master slide itself has gone back to serif.
Font preference (cantarell) in master slide should have been saved and re-used when document was opened again.
From some further investigation,
1. I opened the same ODP using Impress 4.0 on Windows
2. Edited the master slide with font changes,
3. Saved and closed
4. Reopened in Windows again
The font preferences were preserved so no problem here.
Then I opened this ODP in Fedora 19 and it preserved the font change made in Windows as well. But once I edited some text and saved it, and reopened it again (in either Linux or Windows), the font got reset back to Times New Roman.
Therefore, there definitely seem to be a bug in the Linux version of Impress 4.1.
it will be fixed in 4.1 final
